This research area is covered by two groups.
 

Critical Information Studies

The group’s goal is to study and change the impact of information on society. We seek to study information and the narratives which shape it from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, through theory-building, empirical work, action research, and transdisciplinary dialogue. Our approach is critical: we study and seek to impact race, power, gender and class perspectives on information, taking both a historical and a contemporary approach.

Example projects:

  • Critical information/data studies & cultural industries (David Chapman)
  • Models of information as narrative (Magnus Ramage)
  • Algorithmic racism and decolonial computing (Mustafa Ali)
  • Internet governance (Ray Corrigan)
  • Problem-oriented engineering (Jon Hall)
 

Technology and Education Research Group

The group researches: the use of technology for teaching and learning; and the teaching and learning of technology. Our research is informed by our own practice, and draws on our strong record of teaching innovation and our substantial expertise in online and distance learning. The group provides an environment to promote and support these activities, foster collaborative research and increase the impact of the work.

Example projects:

  • Critical information/data studies & cultural industries (David Chapman)
  • Models of information as narrative (Magnus Ramage)
  • Algorithmic racism and decolonial computing (Mustafa Ali)
  • Internet governance (Ray Corrigan)
